* TuxedoAndMartini: Fury started out slightly more Stale Beer but rapidly became some kind of radioactive psychosis-inducing cocktail. Steranko even marked the transition, with Nick shaving the scruffy stubble he'd had since WWII.

** He could also be astoundingly stupid. At about the midpoint of My War Gone By, he actually argues that Americans shouldn't be complaining about our involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq because ''Vietnam was so much worse''...never mind tu quoque, whataboutism, guns versus butter, realpolitik, war weariness, and not making the same colossal mistake twice. Seriously, he managed to live 90+ years without learning about any of that?

Nick Fury is an [[TheAgeless immortal]] superspy. He has been an agent (and later director) of ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}, an international security organization. He first appeared in ''"Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos''" #1 (May, 1963), created by Creator/StanLee and Creator/JackKirby. The HowlingCommandos series ran for 120 issues (May, 1963-July, 1974), featuring the World War II adventures of an army unit. In ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' vol. 1 #21 (December, 1963), an older Nick Fury appeared alive and well in the [[TheSixties 1960s]]. He was no longer with the military, instead serving as an agent of the {{CIA}}. This version of Fury next appeared in ''"Strange Tales''" #135 (August, 1965), where Fury became the leading agent of ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} and the lead of a new series. He has since served as the lead character of several series and magazines. However, the most famous version was the period with Creator/JimSteranko at the helm, that showed arty {{Surrealism}}, Op Art and graphic design sensibilities had a place in comics.

The life story of Nicholas Joseph "Nick" Fury is relatively simple. A UsefulNotes/WorldWarII vet from [[BigApplesauce New York's]] Hell's Kitchen, Fury started fighting the [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazis]] with his [[BandOfBrothers band of brothers]] the HowlingCommandos first before moving onto more esoteric foes of humanity. It was sometime between moving to work for the {{CIA}} and fighting a hate-ray powered clone of UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler alongside [[Comicbook/FantasticFour a walking pile of rocks]] that Fury realized that when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. And thus has followed a several-decades-long CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

* AffirmativeActionLegacy / CanonImmigrant: ''Battle Scars'' (a ''ComicBook/FearItself'' epilogue) introduces Marcus Johnson, a black marine sucked into the world of superheroes when it was discovered he's Fury's son (by way of a black agent the original Fury dated). By the end of the event - coincidentally just as the ''Avengers'' movie premiered - he'd lost his eye, shaved his head, and all in all become Ultimate Nick Fury in the non-Ultimate verse (it's even found that his birth name is really "Nicholas Fury, Jr.").
